Workshop–Crafty Individuals stamps and Giveaway winner

I taught another CI workshop last Thursday and had a great time with a lovely group of ladies. We made a card and tag with an autumnal theme, but before I move on  just to let you know I am announcing the winner of my ICAD envelope at the end of this post.
P1140189
It has really felt like autumn today, chilly, grey and the leaves are starting to turn too, so sad.
 So for this tag and card we used distress inks for the background choosing colours like dried marigold, scattered straw, mustard seed and added a bit of vintage photo and peeled paint.
P1140201
We stamped the image once on the tag, twice on the card and another four times on cream card so that we could decoupage some extra flowers and seed heads colouring them with the same distress inks.
P1140194
We stamped with bubble wrap and white acrylic paint and using a white posca pen we added some highlights .....
P1140203
..... and used whispers pens to add a little more colour on the stamps in the background..
P1140204
Then we doodled round the edges to frame the compositions.

Look at what some of my group made.

They loved their makes and Lorraine had never used distress inks before, she did a brilliant job as did all the others. Isn't it amazing that we all used the same supplies but got such different outcomes?
Thanks ladies for a fabulous morning.

Onto my giveaway which can be found here.

The winner is ...........

Beautiful work. I can't believe it's Autumn already, though the nip in the air tells me it's true. That's the thing I enjoy about teaching; seeing how every begins from the same point but the end result is so diverse. Hope you have a lovely day.

Redanne said...

Hi Brenda, it is wonderful to see the results your ladies achieved, each and every one is beautiful and unique. They did superb work recreating your gorgeous card and tag. I must dust off that stamp and try this too, you are such an inspiration! Hugs, Anne x

PS - congrats to the very lucky Coco
